# How Many Eggs Did He Buy for Rupee?

A shopkeeper sells eggs at 20 for a rupee gaining 30%. How many eggs did he buy for rupee?

- 40
- 30
- 35
- 26

**Answer: (4) 26**

**Explanation:-**

Selling price of 20 eggs = Rs.1

Therefore, the selling price of 1 egg = 1/20

Profit = 30 %

Then, the cost price of a egg = 1 x 100/20 x 130

= 1/26

Therefore, the cost price of 26 eggs = Rs.1

Hence, A shopkeeper 26 eggs buy for a rupee.
